So, my twin brother plays Warcraft. Therefore, I know that people have fought demons, forged international alliances and even eloped on virtual landscapes. Much like Warcraft’s online world, a sim called Second Life has developed a huge following.
Recently, Second Life came up with a brilliant plan to merge their game with the Red Cross! Zombiefest 2009 offered a chance to support the International Red Cross movement with undead avatars, zombie kissing booths and even a virtual Rob Zombie show.
I’ve been unable to locate the exact amount, but the Second Life blog reported an expectation of at least three or four thousand US dollars from the event.
